Wintery Books

btt button

No, no … this isn’t the question you’re probably expecting, that asks about your winter reading habits.

What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?

(Personally, “A Winters Tale” by Mark Helprin pretty much nails this for me, and “Smilla’s Sense of Snow” was right up there…)

And, Merry Christmas, everyone–whether you celebrate or not!

  23. It’s never officially winter or Christmas without. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and The Night Before Christmas. (I know it’s really just a poem, but I have little kids, so our version is a whole book.) Hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas.
